7.31.14

Beachy post today, taking a break from working on 700 other things.

I stumbled across The Aloha Fair a few days ago.
I actually didn’t even know there was such a fair…but I picked up a few cute things, such as my top and shorts below:

7.31.14

I needed an outfit that showed a bit more skin so I could wear these cute little bow piercings on my hips *.*
You can grab those if you like them on the marketplace, the link is in the credits.

Let’s get to them :P

7.29.14 – Dreamworld.

Story of my life lately – behind on all the things :P

I wanted to do a cute photo using the new 8f8 set that is available at The Dreamer’s Factory.
I have a slight obsession with this set, so it’s likely that you will see it again.

Dreamworld.

Also these cute little puffball things  from MishMish…. adorable. *.*

7.25.14

I love my photo for today’s post… that really rarely ever happens (my own worst critic, blah blah blah) but it came out exactly as I had pictured it.

Left the front door open...

Most of the items shown are from various events – lots of them actually.
One of which is opening tomorrow, The Where the Wild Things Are – Summer Gacha event. You will be able to pick up the adorable wombats I have shown above in different colors. I rezzed them but you can wear them and they follow you around.
I never knew I found wombats so cute til now :P

I also love this build I am using from Vespertine. I need to take a photo from the outside, but I always find her textures so visually appealing – so I am actually attempting to set up allll the rooms.

Credits below – and I have a busy weekend ahead so hope everyone has a good one <3

7.24.14

More landscaping/decor stuff today.

I actually am currently in love with my new yard set up. I will be sad (if I can actually bring myself to do it ) to take it down.

I have always been a huge fan of Vespertine and the adorable bikes that were recently released for The Dreamer’s Factory make for perfect decor items. <3

Whisper in the yard and turn the trees all into toys.

I set them up along my “gated entrance” to my house, which is also made by Vespertine, but I plan to show that in a post tomorrow.

I did set up a shed in the back yard though, which is part of a gacha set from Oyasumi available at The Season’s Story:

7.24.14

I might take another picture in the inside since you can’t see much of that in this photo.. but that will also be for another day.

For now…details and stuff below -

7.21.14

Finally set up a new build – The Rivershire Waterwheel from Trompe Loeil.

Rivershire Waterwheel

You can pick up this build at the current round of Collabor88. The interior is adorable but I haven’t finished decorating it yet, so I didn’t take any pictures of the inside.

I did however set up the Low Poly Lullaby set from Half Deer in the living room area.

Low Poly Lullaby.

This set is cute and does come pretty small-scale, but I re-sized it to make it larger. It’s available at The Chapter Four in the gacha room.

To the credits, I am still working on playing catch up.

Home <3 – 7.12.14

I rarely set up full furnished builds, but I really like the skybox from RageWorks at the current round of FaMESHed.
It was the perfect size for me and I plan to split up the decor/furnishings I did on it into 2 blogs. Today is everything but the bedroom, that gets its own post since it’s so stocked full of things :P

For now though, this post is pretty pic heavy <3

Home - 1

House - 2

 

Lastly, this living room set by MudHoney is available at Rhapsody. Today is the -last day- of Rhapsody but I am sure it will be moved to the store after that (sorry, so slow these days :( ).

To the credits, they are long but I tried to divide them up per picture.

I really love this set, but then again I say that about all 8f8 things :P

Also Collabor88 opened yesterday and Half-Deer has cute little gazelles available, which suits the Safari Chic theme:

To the credits now, but I also wanted to apologize for my absence lately – I lost someone close to me in RL and took the week to sort myself out. <3

7.3.14

I seem to be acquiring quite a bit of beach wear lately…so I have noticed all my blogs have been beachy themed.
Perhaps I will wear something else eventually…. maybe.

Anyway –  *BOOM* recently released the  adorable Ariara bikini’s – equipped with giant bow for your front.. and your back :P

7.3.14

I liked the “marshmallow” color combo which is the one I am wearing above.

I am also currently obsessed with the new “wet hair” releases from Argrace, I am wearing one of them in my photo but there is also a shorter style/male style too.

It’s a holiday weekend for me so I will not be around much due to some real things, but I will be back soon <3
